Don't know what Mardi Gras and Carnival is all about? No problem. Mardi Gras and Carnival is a huge world wide secular celebration that happens every year during Winter to get us all ready for Spring. It's really a big deal in New Orleans and most Latin American and many European countries. It's also called "Fat Tuesday" because its the last day to indulge before Lent sets in for Christians to get ready for Easter.
Individuals can also sign-up volunteer to help make Mardi Gras & Carnival a success.
